Recenzii

"Lively, racy, and likable . . . complex in event, imaginative in detail, ethically and intellectually sophisticated." --Ursula K. Le Guin
"Brilliantly and beautifully written . . . a truly superb work of science fiction." --"Infinity Plus"
"Amazing. . . . The Strugatskys' deft and supple handling of loyalty and greed, of friendship and love, of despair and frustration and loneliness [produces] a truly superb tale. . . . You won't forget it." --Theodore Sturgeon
"The story is carried out with a controlled fierceness that doesn't waver for a minute." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"Really interesting...a pretty wild Soviet publishing battle tale." --"Greyt Thoughts" blog

"If you're going to read just one Soviet-era Russian science fiction novel, it should be Arkady and Boris Strugatsky's dark, ambiguous "Roadside Picnic"." --io9

"[a] vivid new translation... it has survived triumphantly as a classic." --"Publishers Weekly"
"The Strugatskys' worldview remains both uniquely cutting and replete with humanity . . . The characters' conflicted views of their troubled world make for a read that still feels fresh today. It's also a book that's bound to make you feel a little less sure of humanity's place in the universe." --"Discover "
"No doubt: a powerful, classic work of science fiction. Certainly recommended." --"The Complete Review "
